Is it Time For a Stay at Home Job?

By Andrew Goligher

The internet. This revolution has helped us do a great many things. We can take a video of our friend falling on his butt and put it up for all to see. We can read ten word posts from vapid celebrities about the silly things they do in a day. Or if you're a little more ambitious, you can use it to find some real work and make money with a stay at home job.

But is it right for you? A stay at home job can be a blessing for some and a curse for others. Here's your checklist...

Can You Stick To Your Own Schedule?

Making your own schedule doesn't necessarily mean "I don't feel like working today... Or tomorrow... Or the next day." Making your own schedule means ACTUALLY making your own schedule and sticking to it. Look, when you set your budget, do you choose to spend twice what you put aside for groceries? If so, you probably need to hold on to the sort of job where you have a boss kicking you in the butt and making you actually show up for work and make some money. If you can't follow your own schedule, you can't make a living working from your own home with a stay at home job.

Are You A People Person?

If you have a tough time meeting people and making friends, you may want to stick with a job that has you leaving the house now and then. You don't realize how important contact with other people is until you don't have it. If you want to work from home, you'd better make sure you put aside a couple days a week to go out and spend some of that money hanging out with your friends. Otherwise, you may find that you're becoming more and more isolated and, yes, you're making money, but you're really not enjoying yourself without having anyone to hang out with.

Are You a Single Mom or a Single Dad?

If you answer yes to this question, then you really SHOULD take up any opportunity you have to work at home. Even if you don't fit anything else on this checklist, being a parent has a way of shaping you up into exactly the person you need to be in life. If you have kids to take care of, you may find that hiring babysitters or paying for a day care center can cost you so much that you may as well not have a job at all. If you're making only so much an hour, the babysitter is probably wanting about the same. If they're taking ninety percent of your money, then it's just not worth it, and you absolutely do need to seriously consider working from home.
